, the precursor to intuit public. we made turbotax. at the time jerry brown was a candidate for president. and he was endorsing the flat tax. and. david: i remember. >> i was queried bit visitors i was talking to, gosh what happens to turbotax if there's a flat tax? i said anyone in the room who seriously believes that the congress of these united states is going to significantly simplify the tax code should not buy the stock. david: it is amazing you remember, that jerry brown was for a flat tax at one point. of course he has gone in the op sit direction. great to see you, bill. liz: happy new year. >> thank you. liz: doesn't that put it in perspective. david: sure does. again, jerry brown for the flat tax. imagine jerry brown and steve forbes same arena. liz: it would simplify things in so many ways. david: of course. we're going opposite direction. liz: lobbyists would not allow it to happen. david: looks like your taxes are going up a bit this year but you could get some relief at the gas pump. it is something anyway, right? we'll tell you exactly how much coming up. liz: ipo activity, initia

to be the panacea that i think governor brown and the california legislature had predicted. last year as a matter of fact i think we created about 3,000 jobs in green energy, that's total. that's all renewables. and at the pace that jerry brown promised, 500,000 new jobs over the next 10 years, it will take him 167 years to actually make good on that promise. david: by the way, the "wall street journal" looked at the government's figures, the federal government's figures about how many jobs were supposedly created by wind power, by a 4 billion dollars wind power project involved over 30 wind power farms, and the government claimed there were 7,000 jobs. the journal sent reporters and called in to each one of those locations, found out there were only 300 jobs. the government said 7,000. in actuality there were only 300. you can't even depend on government stats to back up their job creation numbers. >> well, they put a tremendous amount of investment into this green jobs right now. and frankly the thing we worry about is governor brown has now mandated that 33% all of energy has to come from rene
senator scott brown out of massachusetts leaking some details what people are expecting the white house to be sending to both sides, democrats and republicans on the hill. do you think that what the president's going to send is something that john boehner can sell to his caucus? >> it needs to be. look there has to be more savings. what the president has talked about is more revenue but the concern is, that if the revenue goes to more spending you haven't solved the deficit and the debt. the real secret to getting this thing working is getting economic growth that generates revenue rather than higher taxes. those are elements that we need to get a deal that works and that's why we think there's chance here if the president will come back with some of those savings in his proposal. adam: but here's, we had an economist on yesterday who has no skin in this game politically which gives her credibility to what she had to say. she said the most dangerous thing we could do to the economic recovery is raise taxes. tte president clearly will not give on that point. he is going to raise taxes. i
if the cleveland browns are going to get to the super bowl next year? >> liz, let me look at my crystal ball. david: who would have thought the redskins did as much as they did? by the way, teddy, i've got to ask, apple, do you think apple's going to come roaring back in 2013? >> well, it's not a stock that i own, and regrettably, i wish we did own it. but i think a stock that we do own which could be very interesting next year, take it for what it's worth, i think it might be facebook. david: okay. teddy weisberg, you nailed it, my friend. 13,000 on the button seven times on this very day. teddy weisberg. liz: happy new year, teddy. >> happy new year to you guys and all the viewers. thank you. liz: teddy's been a great friend to our network since day one. david: we love him. liz: a provision adopted decades ago to insure that the wealthiest americans did not avoid taxes could cause a lot of grief for all taxpayers. david: so how could it affect your wallet? liz macdonald joining us now with the details. liz, originally this was meant to effect no more than a couple dozen people. >> reporter: yeah,
and alternatives to the failures of what jerry brown policies will be. stuart: but i put it to you, there is a block of voters, it is a very sizable block of voters in california who don't care about the economy. they don't care about debt. they don't care about it at all. they are involved in totally different separate issues. and that's such a big voting block that you cannot vote them out, can you? >> well, you know, i think that applies to the nation, but i agree there is big trouble when it comes to california, the number of voters that are disconnected from the economic issues, but i think they move front and center eventually because california has 2 million able-bodied people that are not working right now, and at some point they are going to want an answer. stuart: but do they care? they have got all kinds of government programs to support them. and why should they care? i mean, this is california, la-la land. they are having a great time. the weather is great. the beaches are terrific. why do they care? i'm not being facetious. >> you know what? part of the problem with c
? the other day it was scott brown, the senator from massachusetts, who will be leaving in the new congress, but he said a deal was coming from the white house. hearing any idea what it looks like? perhaps a scaled down deal from president obama? >> yeah. i believe we need a big deal, but the more likely possibility, at this point, is it's really focused on a tax deal where they come up with some number between what speaker boehner and president obama talked about, that they address things like alternative minimum tax, and put together a deal that we either try to pass before the end of the year or get agreement to come back right after the first of the year and pass it through both houses. adam: the numbers were something like the president at one point was willing to raise his baht -- bottom line to 400,000. if that's the deal, can you guys, can the men and women in our political leadership pass something before midnight, december 31? >> well, i think so. i mean, and you're going exactly the right direction. if you take what's been put on the table, you got the senate bill, you got the ho
